Joy Fold Autumn Gift Card Holder

     For this card I took the directions for the Joy Fold card - made it square and added a gift card pocket. 

      To make the card base, cut 4 1/4 x 6 1/4, score at 4 1/4 and cut 3 x 6, score at 3. 
     The paper is from Gina K's Autumn Wishes and matted with Honey Mustard and Fresh Asparagus. The circles are die cut from Our Daily Bread's "Stitched Circles". The fall leaves punch is from ek. I used a 1 1/2" circle punch to make the pocket for the gift card. The embellishments include a wood maple leaf, green twine, edge punch poop, and gold Sakura gel pen. 
     I stamped the sentiment using Gina K's "Bounty of Blessings".

Woodland Foil

     This is the first card made in my new craft room in my new house. 

     Unfortunately my laminator and Minc are still in storage. I raided the kitchen pantry for these cards. 
     I wrapped a piece of cardstock with foil (dull side out). I ran the entire thing plus a Sizzix embossing folder, through the Big Shot. The card on the right is using the negative side of the embossing folder. I then rubbed antique gold metallic paint over the foil. It left the embossing clean to give an etched look. I used the Silhouette to create and cut white and black ovals to fit exactly on the embossed frame. 
     Couldn't decide which one I like the best, so I posted them both. Which one do you prefer?
